The Darby Project

The Darby Project – a nonprofit organization whose mission it is to facilitate a successful transition for Army Ranger veterans from active military service to a civilian life, announced that David J. Fisher and Kurowski Shultz are “Founding Donors” of the international charity. 

The Darby Project is a network of networks that synchronizes the efforts of veteran support organizations to lead transition services for the elite Army Rangers.  The group educates active duty Rangers still serving about the programs available to them now and after leaving the service, coordinates Ranger education programs and available resources before the Ranger exits active duty and provides assistance to those Ranger veterans and families that need additional care and assistance after Rangers have entered civilian life. 

David J. FisherPrior to graduating from law school, Kurowski Shultz partner, David Fisher, spent four years in the United States Army and served with the 2nd Battalion, 75th Infantry (Rangers) at Ft. Lewis, Washington. He is a graduate of the U.S. Army Airborne School, Ranger School, Jungle Expert School and German Airborne School among others.  As a well-respected Ranger veteran who understands the unique transition challenges this community faces, David’s energy and focus will result in forming bond between transitioning Rangers, local Ranger veterans and the community.

The Darby Project – a nonprofit organization whose mission it is to facilitate a successful transition for Army Ranger veterans from active military service to a civilian life, announced that David J. Fisher and Kurowski Shultz are “Founding Donors” of the Texas charity. Although the U.S. Army Rangers can trace their lineage back to pre-Revolutionary War times, the history of the modern Rangers began in World War II. Selected as the first commander to lead the newly formed 1st Ranger Battalion in 1942, Colonel William O. Darby established the unit under principles of high standards and discipline. Since then, the same principles have remained as cornerstones in the Ranger Regiment and is the reason why they have been, and continue to be, among the top tier military units in the world. In keeping with Colonel Darby’s principles and legacy, The Darby Project strives to uphold high standards in the services it provides to Rangers after they transition from active duty service.

The Darby Project’s goal is that every Ranger leaving active duty is connected with a local Darby Project Chapter.  The more Rangers in a chapter equals more opportunities and a greater alumni network.  David Fisher is the Chapter President of the newly-created Greater St. Louis Area Chapter.

When transitioning out of the military, there are many changes that a Ranger will undergo. The Darby Project is there to help with resilience, reintegration and redirection into civilian life.  To learn more about David Fisher, Kurowski Shultz and the Founding Donor gift to The Darby Project, visit The Darby Project’s site: https://darbyproject.org/founding-donors/
